Engaging men to end family violence and keep women & children safe
Men’s violence against women and children is a national crisis. On average, one woman is killed by male violence each week in Australia.

It’s crucial that we work with men who use violence to break the cycle of abuse and hold them accountable across the system to ensure the safety of women and children.

The Working with Men to End Family Violence conference will focus on how we work with men, from early intervention to crisis responses to ensure a web of accountability. We will also unpack how we engage men who use violence in evidence-based programs to reduce risk and bring about lasting change.
